This week, there's trouble in Kardashian paradise and Adam Parore poses up a storm with his 20 years younger fiancee.
NW leads with Khloe Kardashian's supposed marital woes and pics of the glum-looking star leaving the gym in a baggy hoodie. Of course in celeb land the donning of a baggy hoodie equals an admission of personal tragedy.
The mag rather unkindly reports Khloe is ‘comfort eating’ and regaining some of the 10kg she recently lost as the rumours about husband Lamar Odom’s infidelity just won’t quit.
Lawyer Polina Polonsky recently came forward to claim she had a six-week affair with Lamar - and she passed a lie detector test. Ouch. She claims Khloe and her mother Kris tracked the couple down to an LA area hotel where the younger Kardashian confronted her husband about his dastardly ways.
"Khloe has a serious dark side to her – people need to know about her violent and vindictive personality. Especially all of her young fans who look up to her," said Ms Polonsky, who claims Khloe had her followed. "I’m scared for my life."
A woman named Jennifer Richardson has also been in the U.S. press for weeks claiming she had an 18-month affair with the basketballer.
The Day reports Khloe has accepted her marriage is over after Lamar himself refused to take a lie detector test over allegations of two extra-marital affairs.
"Very few people think they'll make it. Khloe’s been told by her family that Lamar isn’t up to their standards," a source tells the mag. Given their standards have included Avril Lavigne, Scott Disick and Kanye West I don’t know how much emphasis we should put on this.
"He doesn’t want to live with her and he doesn’t want to sleep with her," an insider tells Famous. "But Lamar doesn’t want to deal with Khloe’s wrath, so rather than hiring a divorce lawyer, he just refuses to live with her. The marriage is very unhealthy."
OK! magazine reports Khloe is keen to exit her marriage, but is being convinced otherwise by her mother Kris Jenner.
"Kris manages Lamar and she doesn’t want to lose that 10 per cent management fee," a source explains. "Kris cheated on her first husband, Robert Kardashian, and she warned Khloe that cheating is part of a marriage."
Someone nominate this woman for Mother of the Year, stat!
This week spy the first pictures of Kim Kardashian out in public since the birth of daughter North – and they’re distinctly underwhelming. I'm assuming Kim didn’t know she was bring photographed which would explain the undone hair, dressed down denim shirt and minimal makeup, all of which is very un-Kardashian. Kanye, for his part, is dressed like a twat.
Her outfit was uncharacteristically loose, said to be because Kim has still half of the 30kg she put on in baby weight left to shift.
"She’s extremely self-conscious about her current body," says a source. "She said when she comes out and gets photographed for the first time she wants to look hot, hot, hot."
OK! reports Kim’s diet is nothing more than chicken, steamed veggies and a foul green juice concoction of kale, celery, spinach, collard greens and coriander. And she had to hire a chef to make that? Fool.
Kim and her rapper boyfriend are at odds over Kanye's desire for baby North to wear a mask out in public in future, a la Michael Jackson’s kids.
"She says there’s no way she’ll make her daughter cover her face and that he’s treating her like a leper," says a friend of Kim’s. "She actually thinks Kanye has lost his mind."
Woman’s Day leads with two women who apparently aren’t sharing their days together any more – former joined-at-the-hip besties Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. Does it make you feel old to know that their show 'Friends' first went to air nearly 20 years ago? It certainly does me.
Jen’s threw fiance Justin Theroux a swanky 42nd birthday bash at their Bel-Air home recently. She gifted her man a $1.25 million gold-plated motorbike and a $600,000 Hermes biker jacket. Six hundred grand for a jacket! Angie Jolie would never go for such a vulgar display of conspicuous consumption.
Courteney was reportedly not invited to Justin's party and was hopping mad, despite presumably being unable to attend as on holiday in Mexico.
Their friendship cooled after Jen apparently once committed the ultimate violation of girl code and told her BFF's husband David Arquette that Courteney was getting busy with her 'Cougar Town' co-star Brian Van Holt – and Coxy never forgave the betrayal.
Meanwhile Justin Theroux’s former girlfriend of 14 years, Heidi Bivens, has contacted Jennifer Aniston warning her of her man’s wishy-washy ways.
"Heidi wrote a lengthy email to Jen warning her that Justin’s pulling his old trick – promising marriage but then not following through," a source tells Famous. "She says he did it to her before they split. She left her number and said she’d be happy to talk to Jen any time."
Monaco’s young royals Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi are bumping their uncle Prince Albert and his wife, weepy Serene Charlene, out of the baby-making spotlight. I just read that sentence back. Not making babies with each other, obviously. The Monaco royals are liberal, but not that liberal.
Andrea is set to wed his babymama Tatiana Santo Domingo on August 31, while Charlotte is five months pregnant to actor boyfriend Gad Elmaleh.
The family’s tragic history has seen their mother Princess Caroline encourage her children ‘that when you find love to get hold of it with both hands and treasure every moment because it could be snatched away from you at any time.’
Next she’ll be telling them to dance like nobody’s watching.
Headline of the week goes to NW’s ‘Miley: Living On Cocktails and Soup.’ I have a suggestion on how to double your efficiency, Miley. Either make a soup-based cocktail or add booze to your bowl.
Yowza! Check out Rihanna at her sparkly, feathery, skimpiest best while dancing in a carnival street party at home in Barbados. Girl goes hard! She is shaking her thang – yes, with an ‘a’.
Rihanna parties most hearty ‘on a survival diet of vodka, smiles and dirty dance moves,’ reports Famous.
The star twerked, humped, bumped and ground up a storm with pals before pulling an all-nighter and going straight to a magazine cover shoot. Oh, to be 25 again!
Lindsay Lohan is said to have turned over so much of a new leaf that she’s even made amends with father Michael, who stayed over at the NYC apartment she shares with her sister recently. She had a successful turn hosting 'Chelsea Lately' and is featuring in a reality-style show for Oprah’s TV network about her return to the spotlight.
"She’s vowed not to blow it again," a source tells Famous. “All she has to do is be serious about staying straight and not fall into her old bad habits.”
Adam Parore poses up a storm with his 20 years younger fiancee, the lengthily named Miller Rose MacLeod-McGhie, in the Woman's Day. She's a lingerie model but works at downtown Auckland restaurant Euro. In her lingerie? Am confused. But I digress.
Adam Parore is 42 and has a soul patch. It's small, but it's there. Enough said.
OK! reports Julia Roberts was so mean to younger sister Nancy about her weight as she grew up that the she resorted to gastric bypass surgery.
"When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight," Nancy Motes says. "She would make it clear to me and in a not-so-nice a manner."
Lady Gaga’s head stylist Nicola Formichetti has quit working for the star. "I cannot do it every day. She changes 12 times a day. It’s insane."
To finish on a disturbing note: Woman’s Day refers to Simon Cowell as Daddy Cool this week. I think I just threw up in my mouth.
And that's all from the mags this week!
